What happens when someone tries to contact me?

  • E-mail:
    Any e-mail will first be scanned for any unauthorized contacts, including spam. Any mail determined to be legitimate mail will receive an autoresponse directing the sender to a Web form that can be used to submit a message to the registrant. If the submitter completes the form properly, an e-mail will be sent with the form's contents to the domain administrative contact within three business days of receipt of the form contents.
  • Land Mail:
    Only mail sent "certified" or "signed for" will be accepted. This mail will be opened, scanned and emailed to the registrant. The registrant may then request that the original land mail be sent COD to their mailing address on record with the registrar.
  • Telephone Contacts:
    The caller will hear a phone message directing them to a Web form that can be used to submit a message.
